Quantcast
Beach Boys grand old man Brian Wilson returns with That Lucky Old Sun, the successor to the legendary SMiLE, a Capitol/EMI song cycle tribute to his hometown L.A. whose upper-demo appeal could see it besting the estimated 30k.
JEEZY SOARING, NEW KIDS ROARING
Christian Rockers Underoath and Beach Boy Auteur Brian Wilson Also on Deck
It’s almost fall, but hip-hop star Young Jeezy is on the rise.

The Atlanta-based rapper’s third Def Jam/IDJ album is just the cure for The Recession, which is a bit of irony, because that’s its name, too.

One-day sales reports from retailers around this great, Sarah Palin country of ours have it pegged at 250k, which would make it an easy #1 on next Tuesday’s HITS Album sales chart.

New Kids on the Block are partying like it’s 1989, boasting a hot new Interscope comeback album, The Block, and sold-out tour, generating first-week estimates pegged at 115k, making it a virtual lock for Top 5, with an outside shot at #2 behind Jeezy.

Tooth and Nail rockers Underoath look to be in the 60-70k range, but Christian bookstore sales could push that total even higher.

Beach Boys grand old man Brian Wilson returns with That Lucky Old Sun, the successor to the legendary SMiLE, a Capitol/EMI song cycle tribute to his hometown L.A. whose upper-demo appeal could see it besting the estimated 30k if it can generate some brisk weekend sales.

A&M/Octone viral rock sensation Hollywood Undead is showing some surprising strength, with first-week sales estimated at 20k, while the same figure is considered not good at all for Diddy’s latest discovery, Bad Boy/Atlantic Making of the Band 3 rocker Donnie Klang.

Next week, IDJ comes with the new LL Cool J and Sony Nashville releases Jessica Simpson's country debut, but the big news will be a week from Friday (9/12), when WB's new Metallica hits the streets.

The market was actually up 2% vs. last week, down 7% against the same week last year and still down a steady 11% year-to-date.

Hey, we’ve got a solution to the Republican mess. Have Angelina Jolie adopt the kid.
